Crescent Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Each Cottage is 2 bedrooms one bath! There are 2 Cottages!

Each Cottage has 2 bedrooms and one bath. They each will sleep 5 people. Each cottage has a King bedroom and another bedroom with twin beds as well as a twin sleeper bed in the living area. They can be rented separately or together. Pineapple Palms Beach Cottages are very close to our beautiful white sandy beach! There is a heated pool that the cottages share! It is very nice and there is plenty of room for everyone! We provide a gas powered golf cart for each cottage as well! The cottages are on a very large lot! Each cottage is separated by a white picket fence so if two separate families rent them they have lots of privacy! We allow dogs at all our properties and the cottages are perfect for dogs. There is lots of space for them to enjoy themselves which makes everyone happy! There is separate parking for each cottage as well as an entrance to the pool with lounge chairs for each cottage. The cottages share a Weber gas grill with a grill gazebo! There is a huge outdoor hot shower! The shower is very private and has a lock on the inside. Often we have 2 separate families in each cottages and they both have dogs but the way they are designed it works great for both families! We provide beach chairs and towels, linens, hs internet, hd cable boxes, baby items (crib, packnplay, stroller, high chair, etc...) The kitchens are fully equipped with ice maker, disposal, dish washer, all small appliances, etc...There are plenty of dishes and pots and pans, etc...The cottages each have 2 bedrooms, a master with a king bed and another bedroom with 2 twin beds. There is also a double sofa bed in the living room. There is a laundry room and a small walk in closet in the master bedroom where the crib fits perfectly! Each cottage has a gas powered golf cart. There is golf cart parking at the beach access. You are allowed to drive golf carts all over this area of North Myrtle Beach. They are lots of fun to have.There are wood laminate floors in both cottages! (NO CARPET) We keep all of our properties very clean and well maintained. We live just a block away so if you need anything we can take care of it right away.

We have retired to the beach and are here most all the time. We keep a home in Greensboro where we worked and raised our family. We have grandchildren there. My husband is a retired dentist and our son took over the practice in Greensboro when he retired. My husband and I own and manage our properties and strive to make your stay as enjoyable as possible! If the cottages are not large enough we have 3 other properties that are much larger. Please call me anytime for more information. I would love to help you with your vacation plans.

Warmest Regards, Shelley and Jan (husband) Kraska

About Shelley Kraska

My husband and I own and manage our 4 properties. We take excellent care of all 4 of them. My husband is a retired Dentist. We lived in Greensboro, NC for 35 years and raised our family there. In 2014 we moved to our home in North Myrtle beach permanently. We love it here! My husband and I grew up in Ohio and both graduated from Ohio State University in 1974 and then he attended dental school at OSU. (Go Bucks!) We live a block from all 4 of our properties. We really looked up and down the coast before deciding on this area of North Myrtle Beach. One reason we loved this section called Crescent Beach is the beach is very wide and beautiful. It is never crowded and very family and pet friendly. You are allowed to use golf carts in this area to drive all over. You are also allowed to ride bikes on the beach. We are close to everything. Parks, Golf Courses, Fine Restaurants, Fantastic Shopping, Tennis Courts, Amusement Parks, Water Sports, Beach Shops, Shows and Entertainment, Marina's, Inlets to the Ocean, Gambling Boats, Deep Sea Fishing, Riding Sea Dos, etc....It is a great location! We love helping families have a great vacation by making sure that your stay is relaxing and enjoyable as possible!

Shelley Kraska purchased this house in 2006

Why Shelley Kraska chose North Myrtle Beach

It is perfect for couples, families, pets, toddlers, small groups of any kind but it is very easy to access. There is lots of grassy areas of dogs and kids and people. It is unique with a private heated pool and fenced yard. It makes your vacation easier. No parking decks or elevators, just walk outside and feel and hear the Ocean Breeze!

What makes this house unique

I provide 6-8 beach chairs and 8 beach towels. There are sand toys, boogie boards, etc... in a container. I also provide baby items such as a full size crib, crib sheets, mattress pad, packnplays, a packnplay mattress, high chair, booster seat, infant swing, infant bouncer seat, infant bath tub, exersaucer, stroller, baby gates, bed rails, etc...hs internet service as well as hd cable boxes in each living area. There are of course flat screen tv's and dvd players in each bedroom. I think we strive to make your vacation as relaxing as possible! Please let us know if there is a special request and we will do our best to accommodate you! We do pick up beach wheel chairs for our guests and return them.

Lovely renovated cottage! It was clean and great for our two doxies!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at one of the cottages for a week with our two miniature dachshunds. We had a lovely time and enjoyed going to the beach and hanging out by the pool. Our dogs loved coming on vacation with us and the cottage was perfect for them. They had access to a fenced in yard and deck. The golf cart was a huge perk and we used it everyday to take the dogs to the beach in the morning and to take our beach gear during the day. The wifi did not work well and that was the reason I did not rate this property 5 stars. Everything was clean and the kitchen was well stocked. We would recommend this beautiful property to anyone and we may even go back ourselves.

Owner's Response: No one called us to let us know that the Wi-Fi was not working well. Time Warner Cable is our carrier so we are at their mercy sometimes. We live a block away and we tell all our guests to call us right away if something needs our attention. She texted me to ask about dining recommendations and never mentioned the wifi. It turned out that we were able to fix the issue very easily after they left. We do ask our guests to let us know if something does need our attention. We can not fix something if we don't know about it! Thanks to all our guests!

Only One Word Needed....EXCELLENT !!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting from Shelley and Jan. We absolutely loved the house. It was very clean and tastefully decorated. We have 2 very small dogs and they were so comfortable being in this home. The fenced yard made me feel safe with my fur babies. I walked the dogs everyday and the neighborhood is a wonderful place. The Ocean is just steps away and the golf cart provided was such a joy to have. Our golf cart broke down the first day and Jan came and brought us another cart. The Kraska's really do try to make each guest feel welcomed and happy in their cottages. Do not hesitate to rent from these owners. Hope to make this our regular summer get away. Thank You Shelley and Jan!

If there is an issue with something that needs our attention we try our best to take care of it immediately for you. The cottages are a perfect home for furry friends as well. This area is very family as well as pet friendly. I know you would also love the cottages!

Third Time Around and Still A Charm!

  • 5 of 5

Dates of Rental (July 9-16, 2016) This is my third time renting the cottages and each time was just a great as the first time. We had six adults among both of the cottages. My daughter and her boyfriend came down and stayed a night. You can probably sleep 4 in each cottage comfortable. The cottages are always clean and everything that you need is there. We all was looking for a nice relaxing and fun week which is what we had. A few hours after we arrive Mr. Kraska the owner road by on his bike as we were sitting out on the deck getting ready to start our vacation to ask us if we got checked in okay? We had no issues of course, but I thought that it was so nice for him to assure that if we do to give him a call and they will make sure that whatever it was that it will be handle promptly. To me those are owners that are not just concerned about your money but concern about you enjoying yourself and want to do everything to make sure your stay was all that you want it to be. While we were down there, we all talked about doing this again next year and using one of their other properties. I would highly recommend any of the Pineapple Palms Properties that these owners have. Had a GREAT TIME!

Owner's Response: Each cottage has a King bedroom and a bedroom with 2 twin beds. There is a twin sleeper in the living area as well. We also provide a crib in each cottage. We have many guests who return each year and sometimes they stay at one of our other properties if they have a larger group. The cottages are very popular and all our guests love them. They are very unique! They are beautifully landscaped with a private heated pool. They are very close to the beach as well and we provide a golf cart for each cottage!

Perfect getaway steps from the beach and just as described !

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at Pineapple Palms and we were very impressed. The cottage was very clean and has everything you need. You could never tell that the cottage was pet-friendly. The landscaping was beautiful and the pool very clean. The owners were always available at any time. We would recommend this rental to anyone !

The cottage we rented for the week was beautiful and spotless!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting anything other than the Crown Reef, and we had our doubts. We were impressed from the moment we pulled into the drive. The landscaping was beautiful...Once we entered the cottage, all of our earlier doubts were gone. The cottage was spotless...You could tell that someone spent a lot of time cleaning....You could never tell by the appearance or smell that the cottage was pet-friendly. The kitchen had EVERYTHING; even down to the measuring spoons...We made reservations for next year mid-way through our stay, and will continue staying every year!

My husband, little dog, and I stayed a week at Pineapple Palms and enjoyed our stay very much. It was exactly as pictured on VRBO. So many times I have been disappointed by the lack of cleanliness in rentals, but this was the cleanest place we have ever rented. So many times I have had to scrub the rental before I will stay in it. I'm not sure why some owners think that because we have a dog, we want to stay in filth. Owners need to look at the fantastic upkeep at these little cottages to realize how much care the owners take in their rentals. It definitely shows and I appreciated it. The king sized bed was great and the washer and dryer were so convenient. Also, the pool was clean and refreshing. I would definitely stay there again.

Car: recommended

The Cottages are located off of 17th Ave. South in North Myrtle Beach. There is Molly Darcy's Pub right at 17th Ave. on the Ocean. There is the hot dog, ice cream shop right on 17th Ave. across from the Beach store. Our grandchildren love the big hot dog on the sidewalk in front of the shop. They are within walking distance of the cottages or you can take the golf cart and it is 10 seconds to get there. This area is also called Crescent Beach. We love this area because it is very family friendly and you can ride bikes on the beach anytime of the day. We love that golf carts are allowed to be driven all over our beach area,to the grocery, parks, tennis courts, shops, restaurants, etc...We have 2 golf carts for our guests at the Cottages. The beaches are pet friendly. There are 2 nice parks close to the cottages as well. One is Central Park and the other is McLean park. We are close to the inlets to the ocean which is great because we have a boat. You can rent a boat, go deep sea fishing, go out on a dinner cruise or one of the gambling boats, etc...because we are close to all the marina's and inlets to the ocean. We are very close to the nicest restaurants, shopping areas, golf courses, shows and attractions, parks, and the best and widest beaches in the area. Our beach access is never crowded and very wide with beautiful white sand. You love this area as much as we do! I am sure of it!

Other Activities: We love to go to our favorite pizza place right at the end of 16th ave. across the street. It is Benito's wood fired pizzeria with great Italian food and pizza. During the summer you must go to the main street carnival and ride the ferris wheel overlooking the ocean. Our grandchildren love to go and we have a great time always. For a drink by the sea or a great burger there is Molly Darcy's at the end of 17th Ave. South on the Ocean. There is a deck overlooking the Ocean which is great for a beer or sandwich. Mr. G's ice cream and hot dog shop is also on 17th Ave. South across from the Beach Shop where you can pick up anything you might need. You can drive the golf carts to any of these places. There is a very nice park across 17 directly behind Krispy Cream which is also close to the cottages for hot doughnuts anytime of the day. We are close to all the attractions, shopping, restaurants, golfing, fishing, water sports (also on the beach at 17th Ave. South).

Golf: There are numerous golf courses near the house in North Myrtle Beach. There are 2 right across the street at the end of 16th Ave. South one is Beech Wood and the other is Possum Trot. There are really so many excellent courses in this area! It is a golfers dream come true! I would recommend just do a search for golf courses in the Myrtle Beach Area. We are just a mile from the Myrtle Beach area. North Myrtle Beach and Myrtle Beach are one in the same really. North Myrtle Beach is a very family friendly area with all the beach homes and golf carts etc...

We have been to all the shows. The new pirate show is great but I would make reservations asap. We are very close to Bare Foot Landing which has tons of shops and restaurants. Broadway at the beach was fashioned after Bare Foot Landing. The House of Blues is great for teens and college age children with all the bands etc...We are close to the Tanger Outlets which are awesome. They are very nice and I would recommend them. Main Street is fun to walk around. It is very close and known for the Shag clubs for dancing where you can dance under the stars next to our beautiful beach. It is the Shag Capital of the World. You can buy shag shoes in the shops and take Shag lessons. The ice cream shop the Sugar Shack on Main St. has excellent flavors of ice cream and highly recommended. Have a great time in North Myrtle Beach!
